today, was suppose to play paint ball with friends but due to the rain, it was canceled. too bad. so instead of playing paint ball, we headed to Ipoh Parade to watch 'Hancock' at 5.45pm. nice movie. funny, very creative story. go watch it ppl. hehe.

Will Smith portrays an alcoholic superhero named "Hancock" who is despised by the public. When he saves the life of PR executive Ray Embrey (Jason Bateman), the latter helps rehabilitate Hancock. He begins to develop feelings for Ray's wife Mary (Charliza Theron).

John Hancock (Will Smith) is an unhappy and reluctant superhero who is living in his own world. For some unknown reason, Hancock is depressed and has started drinking very heavily. He has saved many lives in Los Angeles over the years, but in doing so, he has no regards for damaging buildings, trains, roads, cars, or anything that gets in his way to get the job done. The last time he captured several criminals, it cost the city $9 million to fix the damages. The public has had enough of Hancock, and they want him to stop or go to another city. Then one day, Hancock saves the life of Ray Embrey (Jason Bateman) from being run over by a train. Ray is a Public Relations executive who now can go home to his wife and child, because Hancock was there. Ray owes Hancock his life, and he makes it his mission to change this superhero's image and have the public cheering him.

Later Hancock learns that he's actually not an alien, but a member of an ancient race which have been referred to as angels and gods throughout history, it is revealed that Hancock and Ray's wife, who is revealed to also be a member of this race, are at least 3000 years old, the race eventually died out because of their weakness which causes them to lose their powers when in close proximity to one another. Members of this race were created in pairs, and are inevitably drawn towards each other. Ray's Wife is revealed to be the other half of Hancock, and that they are 'fated' to be together. Ray's Wife and Hancock have a brief fight scene and during this scene tornadoes and other weather disturbances wreak havoc on the city. It is unknown if this is intentionally her doing or a side effect of these supreme beings fighting. Hancock starts to lose his powers as he grows closer to Ray's wife, and his feelings grow, in the end, to save her life from a mortal wound, he leaves her proximity to restore both his powers and hers, healing her. The movie ends with Hancock accepting his role as a hero, and letting Ray and Mary live a normal life, while remaining their friend.
